"Fortnite" Is so Annoying That People Are Now Getting Divorced Over It

By Mustafa Gatollari

Every few years, there's always one game that becomes a worldwide phenomenon, with seemingly everyone, including Josh from accounting, unable to shut up about it.

Right now, Fortnite is that game. People are constantly logging into the online tracker to check their stats, or finding out when the latest "season" is up, and what new challenges are available.
